Contest ends Sunday May 29th at Midnight. Check out the Best Creation blog for details on the prizes that can be won!! NICE new collections!!
For my SUMMER FUN project, I created a Mini book using Best Creation's I LOVE AMERICA line... and no, I'm not American! LOL! But the red, white and blue color combo is just so much fun to play with!!
By using the 6x6 papers, it made for very little waste! And the patterns on the papers were small and suit the size of the project perfectly! In creating my album, I used Spellbinder's NESTED PENNANTS # S5-028 and LACEY NESTED PENNANT # S5-029 die templates. I cut out each page in my Spellbinder's GRAND CALIBUR #GC-001 die cutting machine. This makes it SO EASY to create a unique mini!!
Check it out!!
Here are the inside pages...
The entire album was adhered using my absolute favorite adhesive... Helmar's Premium Craft Glue! On the cover, I used some of the Helmar 1/4 inch square Zapdots to give the banner and star some pop!
I hope that this project has inspired you to create something or at least helped you look forward to the lazy hazy days of summer which have to be coming soon! :)
Thanks for stopping by! Until Next Time...
